Italian Marriage dates
This is the fourth time I have asked this question and all your responses have not dealt with my question.
So again. Look at batch M9C3-C2T. There are 8 records on the top line it gives the date 17 August 1921.
Below it with the line that begins with Avanti di me and it gives the date 26 May 1921.
Which is the date to be indexed? My phone number is 801 831 1783 if you want to call me.
Thanks for your help. John
Regarding your question which date to index:
The Project Manager has indicated that in the batch Italia (Antenati Italiani), Roma—Stato Civile, 1867–1929 [Parte D][M9C3-C2T] to Index the first date at the top of the record as the marriage date.
Hope this answer your question.
I look into the image and the first date at the top is the registration of the marriage, the second date is the actual marriage performed on this date-
The Project instruction on How to Index these records point 3 indicates the following:
- Many records show multiple dates, including birth, marriage, and death dates as well as registration dates. Pay close attention, in particular, not to confuse the registration dates and the other event dates.
The system is asking you to index the date of the marriage not the registration-
The Pi example how to index Marriage records is not clear, will submit this issue for further review. Please hold onto the batch until you hear from us.2
Why is it that these batches are so often coming up "Access Restricted". I would love to see another one of these.0
Probably the best way to see which date is to be indexed is by placing your cursor in the Marriage Day field, then click on the purple bubble. At then end of the Field Help instructions, there is a link you can click on to see an example of where to find and how to index the Marriage Day. Follow this also for the Marriage Month and the Marriage Year. At the bottom of the image which opens in another tab, you will see in both Italian and English the day, month and year which are to be indexed.
Field Help: Marriage Day
Type the one- or two-digit number for the marriage day. The marriage date was often written in the first few lines of the record.
Do not include zeros written at the beginning of a number. For example, "03" would be typed as 3.
In this project, do not index records of banns (or public announcements of marriages), indexes, or attachments. Index only records of actual marriages.
The terms "suddetto," "oggi," "d'oggi," and so on indicate that the date was recorded earlier in the document. They often indicate that the marriage day was the same as the registration day.
If the day was not recorded or was written as a variation of the word "unknown," press Ctrl+B to mark this field blank.

Also, on each of these images there are 2 entries of marriage so you will need to add one entry to each of the images to index the second marriage entry.
Please let us know if you need further assistance with this matter.0

I'd really like to help, or at least see the batch, but perhaps it is already submitted. It will not open for me.0
